The human body has thousands of different proteins, each of which is made up of 20 different amino acids. Nine of the 20 amino acids are considered essential, which means they can’t be synthesized by your body and must be received through food. Leucine, isoleucine, and valine are three of the nine essential amino acids also known as BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids). These amino acids are commonly found in animal products, however, Vegan Amino+ was formulated to contain all the benefits of BCAAs while remaining 100% plant based.
Resistance training causes micro-tears in muscle fibers, which can result in higher passive tension, delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), decreased strength, muscle fatigue, and increased outflow of intramuscular proteins into the bloodstream. BCAA supplementation has been suggested to minimize protein breakdown and/or muscle enzyme release, reduce skeletal muscle damage in response to severe resistance exercise, lessen feelings of soreness, diminish muscle fatigue, and promote muscular function recovery. Also included for recovery are electrolytes: magnesium, sodium and potassium. Electrolytes aid rehydration and muscle regeneration by directing the passage of water into and out of cells. Nerve function is also supported by electrolytes that are often depleted during exercise.
Collagen is a protein made up of amino acids that support the body’s connective tissues and is necessary for healthy skin, hair, and nails. Collagen’s fundamental amino acid profile includes glycine and proline which are both included in Vegan Amino+. Glycine and proline are both considered non-essential (synthesized in the body), however, the production of these collagen producing amino acids can decline with age which creates more demand through diet or supplementation. The body requires sufficient levels in order to meet collagen production requirements. Vegan Amino+ can assist in the health of connective tissues and overall collagen production that impacts joints, hair, skin and nails.
The dark purple fruit of the European elder tree (Sambucus nigra) is known as elderberry. It has a long history of usage in the treatment of colds and flu. Elderberry has been shown to have a large amount of biologically active polyphenols. Polyphenols are compounds that we get through specific plant-based foods. They are heavily packed with antioxidants and are linked to the therapeutic properties of elderberry. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that helps the body utilize sugars, proteins, and fats by supporting insulin production in controlling blood sugar. Chromium enhances the growth of T and B lymphocytes after the immune system is activated. These are the white blood cells that keep the body safe from infection. Immune defenses against invading pathogens are strengthened when these immune cells are increased in number.
